Selectmen's Report. 



SCHOOLS Aro SCHOOL -HOUSES. 

The whole school matter being in the hands of the School 
Committee, we can only give their estimate for the coming 
year. For schools, $9000 ; for repairs on school-houses, 1800. 

• SEEVICES OF TOWN OPPICEES. 

We would recommend the sum of $2500 to be appropriated 
for the current year. This extra amount is needed on ac- 
count of the new valuation to be taken this year. 

HIGHWAYS AND BEIDGES. 

The Superintendent of Roads has made a full Report, 
which will be found elsewhere, giving all the details of this 
department. 

FIRE DEPAETMENT. 

For the doings of this department we would refer you to 
the Report of the Board of Engineers. 

DECOEATION DAY. 

We would recommend that the same amount as the past 
year, $150, be appropriated. 

TOWN HOUSE. 
The amount needed for this purpose will depend entirely 
upon the action of the Town upon the Report of the Com- 
mittee on Addition to the Town House. Th current 
expenses will require an appropriation of $500. 



32 



STATE AID. 
The necessary amount to meet this demand -cannot be 
known until the end of the year ; but we would recommend 
an appropriation of 11650. 

ABATEMEIJT OF TAXES. 
It is necessary for us to provide for errors in the assess- 
ments ; we would recommend the sum of $300 for this 
purpose. 

DISOOUNT OIT TAXES. 

If a discount is allowed, it will be necessary to appropriate 
$1500. 

STATE A-ED OOUl^TY TAX. 

Our State Tax will probably be three times larger than 
last -year, and our County Tax will probably be as large, if 
not larger, than last year. We would advise for State Tax 
13000, for County Tax $3800, the current year. 

I 
INTEEEST. 

It will be necessary to appropriate $2000 for this purpose. 

HAY SCALES. 

The sum of $50 will, we think, be sufficient for this appro- 
priation. 

PEINTIira AEB STATIOISTEEY. 

We shall have to ask for an increase in this department, 
to cover the cost of printing the new valuation book this 
year. The sum of $600 ought to be ample. 

LIABILITIES Am ASSETS. 

We ask you to examine the Treasurer's Account for all 
matter in this department. 



33 



TOWN DEBT. 

The Town still holds the Memorial Hall Fund of 120000, 
and Proprietor's Fund of $1600, which may never be called 
from the treasury. 

MISCELLANEOUS. 

The appropriation of $700 will be sufficient for this pur- 
pose, as near as we can judge.

Report of Overseers of the Poor. 



Our Report in regard to the affairs of this department will 
not vary much from last year. The number of persons 
requiring relief outside the Almshouse has considerably in- 
creased the past year ; and we are now aiding some forty 
persons who are not wholly able to care for themselves. 

It will be remembered that we asked for 12500 for this 
department, and the Town voted 12200, which sum has been 
expended, and we have unpaid bills on hand amounting to 
about $500. Consequently we shall be obliged to ask for an 
appropriation of 13000 for the ensuing year, in order to pay 
those bills and meet the expenses of another year. 

Tlie expenses of the Almshouse have been kept within the 
appropriation, notwithstanding we have been obliged to ex- 
pend nearly |600 for reinsurance on tlie farm buildings, 
buying a new farm wagon, also a large amount of clothing, 
bedding, etc., which were very much needed. 

We liave made a change in the Superintendent the past 
year. Mr. Charles 0. Cummings, after having acceptably 
served the Town in that capacity for a term of seventeen 
years, resigned. His resignation being accepted, we adver- 
tised for proposals to fill the vacancy. A number of proposals 
being received, it was decided to accept that of Mr. Walter 
B. Allen, at a salary of $400 per year ; and as a Board of 
Overseers we cannot refrain from saying that we are well 
satisfied with the admirable manner in which the Superin- 
tendent and family have conducted the affairs of the farm 
since they took charge. 

We should say that an appropriation of 14000 would be 
sufficient for the ensuing year. 



41 

We have asked for $400 on repairs, as we think it neces- 
sary to build a cellar under the shed to keep roots and farm 
produce, as the cellar under the house is too warm for that 
purpose since the introduction of steam into the building. 

We have had our usual number of tramps, and probably 
shall, until the Legislature pass more stringent laws regarding 
them.

Report of the Chief Engineer 



OF THE 



Fire Department. 



To THE Board of Selectmen : 

Gentlemen^ — In accordance with the Eegulations of the 
Fire Department, I submit the following Annual Report. 

The force of the department consists of five Engineers, 
fourteen members of the Steamer Co., and thirty- five mem- 
bers of the Shawshin Co. at Ballard Yale. 

The apparatus is in good order, and consists of one third- 
class steamer, single engine, and one hand-engine, each with 
a hose-carriage connected ; also a four-wheeled horse hose- 
carriage, carrying 1000 feet of hose. 

We have ladders, also hooks and ropes for pulling down 
buildings at each house. There is 2000 feet of hose for the 
steamer, and 500 feet of hose for the hand-engine in good 
order, and 350 feet of hose for hand-engine old and unsafe. 
There is still a great need for a new house sufficient to 
accommodate all the apparatus belonging to the steamer. 

In accordance with a vote of the Town, there has been a 
Bell-Tower added to the Shawshin engine-house at Ballard 
Yale, — 

Appropriation, ^ 1200 00 

Paid as per contract, 215 00 

Overdrawn, fl5 00 

There have been four alarms for fires during the past year, 
and two fires have occurred for which there was no general 



45 

alarm, but some members of the department rendered 
valuable service, and their time was allowed by the En- 
gineers. 

May 11, a fire in the woods at Ballard Yale, no alarm 
given, loss about ^25 ; cause of fire unknown. 

June 24th, an alarm was rung at 9.30 P. M. The steamer 
Co. responded, but their services were not required, the fire 
being out of the town limits. 

July 14th, fire was discovered at 9.45 A.M., in the house 
of Mrs. Smart, on Salem Street. The steamer was prompt 
to respond, but owing to a short supply of water they could 
not prevent a total loss, amounting to |550. Insurance, |550. 
Cause accidental. 

October 18th, fire was discovered at 6 P. M., in the house 
of Mrs. S. F. Abbott, corner of Main and Phillips Streets. 
There was no general alarm given ; loss $100 ; insured. 
This fire was caused by a lamp on the table, which ignited 
a curtain at the window. 

October 27th, fire was discovered at 6.30 P.M., in the un- 
occupied house of Charles O'Hara, in West Parish. This was 
a dwelling partially built ; the steamer Co. responded, but 
owing to the inflamable material and short supply of water, 
they did not work the engine. The Shawshin Co. of Ballard 
Vale came up part way with their engine ; origin of the fire 
supposed to be incendiary. Fully insured. 

November 18th, fire was discovered at Mrs. H. P. Beard's 
residence on Elm Street, at 2 A. M. The steamer Co. re- 
sponded quickly, and extinguished the fire. The damage to 
property was |100 ; but the lives of two children were sacri- 
ficed, they being smothered before the alarm was given ; 
cause incendiary. 

I would recommend that 11300 be appropriated for the ex- 
penses of the Fire Department for the ensuing year.

There are about one hundred and forty miles of roads in 
town ; and if they are not at all seasons perfectly dry, and 
broken out within an hour after the snow stops falling, it 
should be considered that there is a limit to expenditure and 
to the power of men and horses. 

All of which I respectfully submit for consideration and 
approval.

Report of Cemetery Committee, 



The Cemetery Committee herewith submit their Annual 
Report, togetlier with the receipts and expenditures for the 
year ending February 7th, 1880. 

Samuel Raymond, Esq., who has been the efficient Super- 
intendent of the Cemetery since the land was purcliased, 
and who has taken a very deep interest in laying out the 
lots and in all the improvements made thereon, the Com- 
mittee regret to say, removed from town early in the year. 
Charles S. Parker was appointed to fill tlie vacancy. 

The annual appropriation for this object was reduced at 
the last annual town meeting to $300, and the Committee 
have consequently not been able to accomplish so much in 
improvements as they would otherwise have done. They 
have, however, at a very reasonable expense, succeeded in 
lifting all the stumps from the open grounds, and propose 
to remove them from the premises at an early opportunity. 
A ventilator has been put into the tomb, and the roof has 
been concreted. The wall around the pool near the en- 
trance to the Cemetery has been rebiiilt and made perma- 
nent, and the avenues and paths about the grounds kept in 
good condition. Amount received for lots, 1108. 

The Committee respectfully ask the Town for an appro- 
priation of 1500 for the ensuing year.

Eighth Annua! Report 



OF the: 



Trustees of the iVlemorial Hall. 



The work of our Free Public Library has been going on 
as uninterruptedly as in any of the preceding years of its 
history ; and we may reasonably believe that it is silently 
exerting a most beneficial and wholesome influence in this 
community. Certainly it is exercising an influence. So 
many volumes as anntially go into circulation from its 
shelves cannot be read, or even partially read, without 
leaving their mark. Nor can a cheerful reading-room, com- 
fortably warmed, lighted, and well furnished, exist in tlie 
centre of a town like Andover without introducing into the 
lives of many light and happiness and the means of improve- 
ment which would otherwise be wanting. 

One of the most important functions of a free library and 
reading-room is the creation of new wants and the stimu- 
lating of every healthy appetite of the mind by gratifying it. 
It is always hoped by those who provide libraries with a 
supply of reading that requires but little effort on the part 
of the reader, and in many cases does little more than amuse 
him, that the habit of reading being once formed by the use 
of these books, there will be an interest awakened in litera- 
ture of a more improving character. Probably there are few 
who enter the doors of our hall who have not in a greater 
or less degree the desire to do something more than amuse 
themselves. They would be glad to acquire the means of 



59 

becoming better companions to themselves and to others. 
But it is undoubtedlj the case that many who have this 
desire in a not very strong form become discouraged by 
meeting with obstacles at the outset. 

The Trustees hope that they have made what will prove 
to be a valuable addition both for this class and for all other 
readers, by placing on a table in the reading-room a cyclo- 
paedia and two quarto dictionaries. They hope they will be 
Ireely used, especially by those who desire to form a taste for 
instructive reading. There is nothing more stimulating to 
tlie desire for general knowledge than the free use of a 
cyclopaedia. The pleasure that is experienced in finding 
out by one's own search in books exactly what one wants to 
know is akin to that of the prospecting miner who digs a 
nugget out of the earth. One nugget never satisfied a miner. 
One successful search in a cyclopaedia will never satisfy a 
true son of Eve. 

The Trustees are happy to be able to state that a plan for 
the foundation of a Natural History Museum which has 
for a long time been maturing in the mind of Mr. Francis 
G. Sanborn is likely to take shape and substance during the 
present year. Mr. Sanborn has very generously offered his 
time and services for the arrangement of such a collection, 
and also the loan of a large number of valuable specimens. 
Mr. George W. W. Dove has also given two large cases of 
stuffed birds, which will put the ornithological department 
on a good footing at the outset, and at the same time be a 
permanent object of beauty and interest. 

It was with regret that the Board learned the decision of 
Mr. Samuel Raymond to remove his residence to New York. 
Mr. Raymond has been a most constant and efficient friend 
of the Library from its beginning. He first served on the 
Building Committee, and subsequently in the capacity of 
Secretary and Treasurer, gratuitously, giving much time 
and labor to the interests of the institution. Mr. James B. 
Smith was chosen to fill the vacancy in the Board, and Mr. 



60 

Warren F. Draper has filled the office of Secretary and 
Treasurer. 

The annual January examination has shown the library 
and other property to be in good condition.
